September is National Recovery Month

posted on September 26

The road to recovery can feel lonely and you are not alone. In 2020, 40.3 million people aged 12 or older had a substance use disorder. Each path to recovery may look different, but recovery is possible and help is available, for people with a substance use disorder and for their families.

September is National Recovery Month. In recognition of this time of awareness, the Uwharrie Recovery Task Force created a Recovery Resource Guide. This guide is for local churches and clergy to use as they care for individuals and families affected by addiction. The guide includes a book list, Bible study, stigma reducing language, and agencies within the Uwharrie District that serve people affected by addiction. You can find the complete resource guide, as well as links for individual resources, on the Recovery Task Force page of the Uwharrie District website.
